    Never used Nikon F2SB

    I have a Nikon F2SB black body with no paint missing with DP-3 viewfinder that has never had 1 roll of film through it. I bought the camera in '77.
    Is this camera worth anything? If so, what is the going rate?
    Also have a used Nikkor.C 80-200mm zoom. Is that lens worth anything?

    Thanks

    The F2SB is worth something, KEH has one listed in Exc condition for about $750, as for the lens, I have no clue.

    Found this eBay listing for what sounds like the same lens. Some minor flaws though.

    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    The lens isn't as desirable as the body, of course.

    With respect to the body, before I'd use it, I'd have it refoamed, even though it's new. The dust seals and mirror cushion will deteriorate, even if there hasn't been any film loaded into the camera ever. Since it's 33 years old, stuff may be getting sticky and gooey.

    The premier shop for F2 repairs is SOVER WONG. I'll send my F2 there when it needs service. However, he is located in the UK.

    Another shop that I've used, with excellent service, in the US is FOTOCAMERA REPAIR, Pete Smith, at 30950 S. Military Trail, Suite 15 & 16, Lake Worth FL 33463 Phone 561-433-8434

    I've had my F2 cameras serviced by Sover Wong and lenses serviced by Pete Smith. Both repairers do top notch work. Sover's website is worth a visit whether or not you choose to ship to him.

    You can sell your camera here at APUG Classifieds after Subscribed 12 dollars
    per 6 months. I think you can sell it at half an hour . Subscription to Paypal in this time range , easy the transaction.

    Hello,
    I'm interested in your unused F2SB. Will you offer for sale and if so, what is the price?
    Thanks.

    Who should you send it to? Where are you located in the world? Always tell people if you're in the U.S., U.K., Australia or whatever.

    Regarding the body, I would test fire it to make sure that it works. Also, hopefully, you never put any batteries into the body.

    And make sure that deteriorating foam doesn't get into the shutter mechanics. Because then you'll really have problems.
